    Free hosted message boards

    can you help me find some message boards that are hosted by the service provider?

    bannerless - if possible
    fully customizable
    So, you can try to tear me down
    Beat me to the ground

    hosted at their own servers.. but not ad-free
    To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism, to steal ideas from many is research.

    I researched this about 6 months ago. I found most to be lame, misconfigured, or just plain didn't work. The very best I found was Best Boards free with banner ad or U$2.50 a month without.
    Zoobie or not Zoobie...That is the problem.

    I was thinking of making a hosted version of my QUICKboard app which I spent all night making.

    QUICKboard is not really customizeable and only has the bare essentials.

    I'm almost finished making my first prototype you could just host one on brinkster as it isn't big.

    Full support for:
    Forum code
    Admins & Moderators
    Bad word filtering
    User banning and supending
    changeable skins
    forum statistics
    rich text / html support
    edit / delete post abilities
    smilies
    open / close forums abilities
    open / close thread abilities
    Enable / Disable posting
    Enable / Disable registration

    I know all that isn't much really but that is why I made QUICKboard, some people don't want huge forums just the basics.

    If you can't get one hosted you could consider that.

    Does ezboard.com still do forums? I used them for a while and didn't have too many complaints...

    I am very happy with my forums...

    they can be got from www.proboards.com or www.hyperboards.com (same company)

    they are free (but with ads) but for 6.99 dollars u can ditch the ads each month.

    have a look at my customised examples...

    www.clubdysfunction.co.uk
    www.freak-club.co.uk
    www.sluts-online.co.uk (ps this is not porn, it stands for Sussex Loud & Ugly Tunes society)

    I think they will be exactly what you are looking for
